Image via UFC

Travis Browne, a 6'7 inch, 255 pound man, used a double flying knee to set up a big takedown on Chad Griggs. Seriously. Once it got there, Browne quickly moved to mount and finished him with an arm-triangle choke. The finish came at 2:29 of the first round.

Griggs landed a solid leg kick as the first strike of the fight. Browne landed the huge flying knee, then locked Griggs up and landed some more knees to the body. Griggs looked to escape, but Browne threw him to the ground. Hapa started in side control and quickly moved to mount against the cage. Browne set up an arm triangle that looked deep, but Griggs responded with a few strikes. It ended up being as tight as it looked though, and Griggs was forced to tap.

Browne came into the bout trying to keep his undefeated streak going. He picked up a unanimous decision win in his last bout against Rob Broughton at UFC 135 last October. Griggs was making his UFC debut after moving over from Strikeforce. He was on a six-fight winning streak entering this bout.
